lyrics

Amelia

Amelia, the fearless and free
Amelia, carry you carry me
To places so far we could only have dreamed
From Atchison, Kansas to anywhere you please

Amelia, we heard the news today
Amelia, from far, far away
Your Lockheed Electra is lost and astray
You have vanished Amelia, but help is on the way

Flying high, Amelia you are lost in the clouds
Wave good–bye, Amelia, will you ever come down?

Amelia, we listened to your call
One half hour fuel and no landfall
You couldn’t see the boat through the black clouds of smoke
Amelia, we are hanging on a hope

Flying high, Amelia you are lost in the clouds
Wave good–bye, Amelia, will you ever come down?

Amelia, "Fear is a paper tiger"
Amelia you say, "I do what I desire."
"I fly by starlight over perilous seas
And if I am lost, will you come looking for me?"

Amelia you are lost in the clouds
Amelia you are lost in the clouds
Amelia you are lost in the clouds
Amelia you are heaven bound
